Vacancy: York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Enterprise Partnership Chair

02 October 2017

York, North Yorkshire and East Riding is an ambitious region benefiting from multi-billion investment and a strong growing economy. With a vibrant mix of the stunning Yorkshire Coast, two National Parks and the world renowned city of York, we have a strong, growing economy, ideally placed to take advantage of many new opportunities.

Following six successful years in which we have attracted over £250m public sector investment, provided the economic support to deliver the largest private sector investment in the Northern Powerhouse, and secured the UK’s most iconic enterprise zone at York Central, we are seeking a new Chair for our next phase of development.

Building on existing success and strong relationships with both local and national politicians, the Chair will lead the development of new opportunities as the UK exits the EU, positioning the region to secure new investment and delivering private sector led growth and jobs.

Do take a look around our website, where you can find out more about our work, particularly in our Annual Report and Strategic Economic Plan. If you require any further information, you can contact our Chief Operating Officer James Farrar on 07791 885965.

This is a pro-bono appointment and the time commitment can be tailored to suit the diary of a business leader.
